Fast paced, hysterical comedy
I just saw the premiere of the movie. It is hysterical. If it can happen, it does.
This is an indie, foodie-premised movie that pokes fun at all sorts of stereotypical types of scenes. Even having been fed a few spoilers - I wasn't ready for them to happen, and so there was no spoilage (all puns intended). It is full of gags - that work. The food, while wonderful looking (most of it) takes a back-seat to the personalities (interacting and conflicting) that fill the pictures.
The budget was extremely low (from foundations and kick-starter) - but there is nothing low-budget about the quality of craftsmanship in the movie.
Yes, it does poke some fun at local quirks, but to anyone from outside of Pittsburgh they will just seem funny and quirky. Those of us that live in Pittsburgh could laugh at the additional stereotypes that we hold.
I laughed almost constantly. My wife says I guffawed. So did the entire audience. It is worth seeing.
